Thought I’d share with you one of my guiltier pleasures… I have long lived by the rule that if I can’t enjoy Saturday morning cartoons, then I should just be shot. Some years are leaner than others and I’ve had to stretch that word “enjoy” more than a little, but so far I’ve held true to form. It helps to have kids to watch Saturday morning cartoons with, though they sometimes enjoy cartoons I wouldn’t touch with a ten foot pole. But that’s another story…
This Spring, a new cartoon on the Kids WB network was introduced: World of Quest. I didn’t realize it was based on an existing comic strip until this morning when I was poking around. But it’s based on a graphic novel (which was based on a web comic) by Jason Kruse. You can read more about it at his website here.
Now, I have to admit — this cartoon is not for everyone. I get it. It has fart jokes, butt jokes, and other, similar crude humor in its repertoire. However… How can you not laugh at farting swamps, monsters who want to see the world, and mountains that act like puppies… Come on!
What made me gasp this morning was that it wasn’t Patrick Warburton doing the voice of Quest. I was shocked at this. It’s Ron Pardo, who does a number of the voices in the show. He’s almost dead on for Warburton. But he has all the best lines in the show. 🙂
So if you’re a fan of juvenile humor that in most cases is more suited for adults than kids… I’d recommend this cartoon. It’s fun, irreverent, and not a bad way to giggle your way through about 25 minutes (minus commercials). Set your Tivo for it. 🙂
